Bee foraging chronically impaired by pesticide exposure: Study

9 julio 2014

A new study that involved fitting bumblebees with tiny radio frequency tags shows long-term exposure to a neonicotinoid pesticide hampers bees’ ability to forage for pollen. The study shows how long-term pesticide exposure affects individual bees’ day-to-day behavior, including pollen collection and which flowers worker bees chose to visit.
